trolled, can contribute significantly to the likelihood of a stroke. But even healthy folks who’ve done everything they can to prevent a stroke, will have a stroke sometimes, and strokes do not discriminate by age or fitness level.

Awareness is the first step towards being prepared for this lifethreatening condition. Remember the FAST acronym, and make sure your family knows the signs and symptoms, too. Talk about what to do. Make a plan. Be prepared.
